The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper

Event Type: Local / Community

Takes Place: 26th September 2019

Time: 7.30pm – 9.00pm

Venue: The National Archives, Kew

Description: Though they never met, five women – Polly, Annie, Elizabeth, Catherine, and Mary-Jane – are bound together in history and fate. All brutally murdered in 1888, their killer was never officially identified. But the character created by the press in the absence of conviction – ‘Jack the Ripper’ – has long overshadowed any of the victims. Author Hallie Rubenhold will discuss her fascinating new research, alongside a display of original documents which reflect womens’ lives, the context of their murders, and late 19th-century Whitechapel.
